asparagus with wasabi mayonnaise
Asparagus with wasabi mayonnaise is a really nice, simple summer appetiser.

It contains so few ingredients – and is so straightforward to make – that it’s more of an idea than an actual recipe.

Asparagus with wasabi mayonnaise

  • 1 large bunch thin (or sprue) asparagus
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • a dollop of wasabi – fresh, paste or powder
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • a pinch of sugar
  1. Steam the asparagus until just tender. Run under cold water, pat dry and chill until needed.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, wasabi, soy sauce and sugar. Adjust the balance of ingredients to suit your taste.
  3. Arrange the asparagus spears on a plate, and serve with the mayonnaise on the side for dipping.
